Get the Job with This Resume

Posted by on in News
 Advice from a CEO Almost every resume that job seekers send me are far too general and broad in their scope to be of use to me or to any potential employer. They are really biographies that list every job they ever had and all the schools and training they ever received. These resumes do not specifically tailor their information to help the company decide that you should be interviewed for a particular position they have posted. This is what resumes do: They get you an interview, not the job. So your job in writing a resume is to convince the...

Why We Cannot Stop Our War on Terror

Posted by on in News
9/11, Today & Tomorrow On September 11, 2001 the United States suffered 4 coordinated attacks by Islamic terrorists. It was a Tuesday that must be remembered. It is no less of a seminal event in U.S. history than December 7, 1941, when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. The Islamic radicals, which are far more prevalent now than then, targeted the White House, the Pentagon and the Two Towers of the World Trade Center. The attempt upon Washington D.C. was thwarted by the brave passengers who forced that plane to crash. All died in that heroic effort. – This attack claimed the lives...

Write a Resume that Gets Read

Posted by on in News
Remember to put yourself into the head and eyes of an HR assistant who has the job of glancing at resumes and selecting a few for their boss to look at. Get right to the point. Make it as sharp as a knife. Do not list every job you had. In fact, you could summarize them all into one brief paragraph. Focus not on describing in detail each job, but on the keywords that relate to your skills and the talents required by the job for which you are applying.  Resumes are first read by an assistant or by a computer....

From Homeless Vet to hiring Vets!

Posted by on in Jobs For Veterans
A single day's work can be transformative for any Veteran, especially one fighting his way back from homelessness and addiction. I know this because I am a Veteran and was once in need of not only a well-paying job but a safe place to live. I got both with help from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and formed my company, Veterans Moving Help, to provide the dignity of work to other Veterans. My journey wasn't easy. I'd been in the U.S. Army and benefited from its strong support system. When I returned home in 1987, I lost that...

A July 4th to Remember

Posted by on in News
Have a fun 4th. -- My memories of this day are much different than this generations. Every home in every neighborhood in America would go and buy boxes of fireworks from temporary stands. They were everywhere and called Red Devil Fireworks stands. On the 4th,  hundreds of fireworks were going off all down every street in America. It started well before nightfall and went on all night. July 4th was America's block party. It was amazing, exciting, fun and very patriotic. Wish you knew that America. But you get a glimpse of it in the movie Sandlot.     Have a...

Find A Job Faster!

Posted by on in News
Important Tips for job Seekers Never tell a fib on a resume. It will turn around and bite you in the ass, sooner or later.  Your qualifications and achievements are more important than your education and job history. What skills and talents do you possess? How have companies profited from hiring you? How did you affect their bottom line?  Too, a general resume that you use for any job that you apply for is not very helpful, unless you stay within the same industry or job title. Even then, every submitted resume should be customized for each job application. -- Many...
